Re: Cant place order for battery.

So according to IATA a LiPo can only burst into flames when not shipped together with a camera. That is something I would like to see explained by them!

Me too, I had LiPo's being shipped to me by air that have far greater mAh ratings and capacity, GoPro batteries are tiny babies compared to drone LiPos. And DJI amongst other brands still ship those.

Hi, in America batterry can be sent with ground currier to avoid air transport regulation.

Why can't do that in Europe to?

Re: Cant place order for battery.

This is clearly something GoPro could solve.

 

We should keep the pressure up in this thread and in support calls until they do...

Strange that this forum is still working over WiFi, it is powered by Lithium! ;-) Com'on GoPro, get your act together and sort those shipping issues out!

Well, the latest is if you select the battery charger that comes with a single battery you cannot order that either... and you will notice it's at full price
